my friend called me almost crying - Page 2

post #16 of 43
Thread Starter 
thanks for the advice ..she was calling the lady who made it and she wasnt answering her calls ..So I called her from my number thinking she might answer if she doesnt recognize the number which she did and I told her politely that she gives my friend a refund or at least 150 of the money back ....The cake didnt only not serve 100 ppl it was a 1layer cake....and luckily I was able to make 4dozen cupcakes and tae them to the party it was a little late but everyone got to eat one...I can't believe there is bakers out there who would do such a thing and ripp ppl off ..I bake myself mostly for friends and family and once in a while I get orders from friends of friends etc. it's more of a hobby to me but I would never do such a thing..I will post a picture of what the cake was suppose to look like ...


Oh and the lady didnt want to give her a refund she was offering a discount off her next order//???? like hello why would she ever order again..so My friend told her she just wanted her money back if not all most of it she was willing to comprise ....She ended up giving her half

This is what the cake was suppose to look like it was suppose to be fondant and bigger of course and ill post the cupcakes

I think the cake you got is really cute, but it's really tiny, and you'd be lucky to feed 50 people including the cupcakes, but it's also not what was ordered. I would warn other people. I would think she bought it from a cheap bakery and put the cupcakes around it and probably paid $50 for it.

Definitely post a review on Yelp about this bakery to warn others.

Looks like the baker couldn't do the ordered cake and went to sam's club to save her butt.....

My thought, exactly. So, she paid less than $40 bucks and pocketed the rest. That's quite the scam.............

OMG! I would have freaked.

A discount on her next order? Like your friend will ever order from that baker again.

I would be leaving a comment on Yelp, facebook, blog, etc to warn others.

Even half a refund is silly, $125.00 for a cake that looks NOTHING like what was ordered and didn't feed half the guests there. I would have wanted everything back minus the $40.00 she spent buying that cake from the grocery store (if I was in a good mood anyways).

PLEASE make sure your friend reviews this baker on whatever websites she can so others won't be tricked by her too.

Oh and that was super nice of you to bake some cupcakes for her icon_smile.gif Your a good friend.

$250.?? Geez what a rip off artist. Oh my word no wonder she wasn't answering the phone when she could see it was the customer calling. She should be refunding more than $125.00 though. These are the stories you see on Cake Wrecks!

If that's a quarter sheet it serves 24, plus the cupcakes makes 44 servings total, so yeah, a refund is due based on the serving count alone.

What would be funny is if the baker were a member of cc and SHE wrote in to vent about the customer that made her refund half her money! LOL!!

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I bought my daughter a cake like that from Target back in 2007, it was 29.99, it had a sheet cake in the middle, cupcakes around the sides. And it was a 1/8 sheet cake. Fed about 20 people if that. Your friend definitely got ripped off!

I was thinking the same thing when I read the OP lol. If she is a member and is following this thread I hope she's ashamed of herself. Really that's lame. I know it's usually the baker who gets taken advantage of, big time. I feel bad for this customer.

I assume that your friend can prove that she sent an email asking for cake for 100 people.

Well your friend needs to email the cake maker and say that she is owed a REFUND of $200 for the small cake delivered. None of this BS about "credit" towards the next cake.

She then needs to post on the websites exactly what happened, with pictures, that cake was provided for 20 people instead of 100, and that somebody else had to bake cupcakes at the last minute.
